PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - On Sunday, March 26, New Covenant Church of Philadelphia is celebrating the 103rd birthday of Mildred Agnes Rucker.
Mildred, who has been a member of New Covenant since 1982, is a native of Fayetteville, NC and resident of Philadelphia for over 80 years.
The congregation describes Mildred as having an “incredible energy and love for serving others,” which has remained steadfast throughout the many decades of her life.
After receiving a Nursing Degree from Temple University, she had a highly-fulfilling career as a Private Duty Nurse, then as an Assistant Teacher in the Philadelphia Public Schools.
Until age 96, this remarkable centenarian also served as a loving foster grandparent to numerous deserving children.
